Tavira Town Views
March 5th, 2021
Today we’re in the southeast corner of Portugal, near the border with Spain. Tavira sits on both sides of the Gilão River with the Ponte Romana providing the connection between them. Walk either side of the river and you’ll find a mélange of two-story buildings in antique white and pastel colors, their parapets and hipped roofs adding a top layer of decoration. Traditional Portuguese tiles add a bit of texture here and there, and each doorway shows beauty and age in equal measure.
We were here on a quiet, cool spring day with a gray sky. This town of the Algarve has a unique beauty and wonderful location near long, wide beaches along the Gulf of Cadiz.
Enjoy the Tavira town views in the gallery and click on any image to view it larger. Tomorrow I’ll be writing and sharing a new post related to Portugal’s location on the Atlantic and a particular trade it sustains. Any guesses?
